Rise of the Ronin is launching exclusively on PlayStation 5 on 22 March 2024. This release date coincides with the launch of Dragon’s Dogma 2 which will pit the two games in a competition for players’ attention. Developed by Team Ninja, known for their work on Nioh and Ninja Gaiden, the game will put players in 19th-century Japan during the Bakumatsu period.  Here's everything you need to know about the Rise of Ronin release time, preload availability, and download size.

Rise of the Ronin Release Details

The game's release date coincides with the highly anticipated launch of Dragon’s Dogma 2, setting up a direct competition between the two RPGs. Rise of the Ronin will be available worldwide except in South Korea, where it will not be released due to its sensitive historical context.

Rise of the Ronin Release Time

Rise of the Ronin will launch on 22 March 2024. Unfortunately, the New Zealand trick, often used to play new releases early on Xbox Series X|S, does not work on PS5 because PlayStation accounts are region-based.

Preload and Download Size

Players eager to jump into the action on release day can preload the game starting 15 March 2024. This allows you to download the game ahead of time, reducing wait times on launch day.

The download size for Rise of the Ronin is expected to be 96.3GB, making it a substantial download. Ensure you have enough free storage space on your console before downloading the game.

Gameplay and Features

With elements of both open-world exploration and furious fighting, Rise of the Ronin has similarities to Team Ninja's earlier games, such as Nioh and Ninja Gaiden. Fast-paced dueling with timed parries and counters is the main combat style. Weapons used in this style of combat include swords, spears, pistols, and even flamethrowers. 

Because of the game's advanced technological background, players can use devices like gliders and grappling hooks for navigation.

PC Release Date and Future

There are currently no plans for a PC version of Rise of the Ronin, which is solely available on PlayStation 5. However, Team Ninja has previously released PlayStation-only games like Nioh on PC.
